This is just to let you know that Stonewall has today published their detailed response to the Government’s consultation on extending the legal form of marriage to same-sex couples.

Their consultation response can be found here – where you’ll also find details of how to reply to the consultation yourself.

We support the Government’s plans. This is a modest change and we hope the proposals will be included in the Queen’s Speech in May.

You’ll already have seen the ferocious and deeply offensive campaign that many people – including some leading clerics and political figures – are waging to frustrate this move. In the past three weeks alone equality for gay people has been compared to slavery, child abuse, polygamy and bestiality.

We know what we’re up against and we need your help. You can make your voice heard by responding to the consultation – details here

P.S. If you’d like to see how Stonewall responded to some of the claims mentioned above, these are some examples: BBC News Channel and Moral Maze
